There are plenty of "stickies" or dessert wines out there with many chasing over the $20 mark for a 375mL bottle. Those who are budget conscious look no further than this wine - less than $15!
Plenty of orange rind, mandarin peel and ripe apricot characters are in abundance. Not too thick and syrupy as some botrytis wines, the flavours are moreish and are similar to apricot nectar.
The length appears to last forever too. A wonderfully balanced drop I must say.
The back label suggests to have with a lemon tart. I did. I even added some finger lime goodness to it - a superb food and wine match!
A wine I'd definitely throw in the trolley.
